Can we please not boost AI / computer generated images if they aren't behind a CW?

These images are everywhere right now because it's a meme, and they make me feel both nauseated and headache. 😭

@maloki Luckily I've found them mostly from a few accounts, which are easy to mute. I didn't even know they were a meme now. :) I just don't see them. Better to mute/block than try to change people's behavior in the abstract. You can also always ask the particular people boosting them, or turn off boosts from those people if it's bad enough.

@bright_helpings How is this different from asking for any other CW for accessibility reasons?

@maloki It's not different; any need for a CW that's about a medium rather than a message, I think it's good advice to look for the bots posting this stuff and mute/block them. If your friends are boosting it, talk to them or hide boosts. If it's your friends posting it directly, talk to them rather than the entire tl which is mostly people who aren't doing the thing and often don't know what it is.

@bright_helpings it wasn't bots this time, which is why I brought it up again.

About CWs and AI generated stuff / mostly explaining my energy 

@bright_helpings Anyways, sorry for getting so defensive, it's just tiresome to get told "just block it" when it became a meme and so many more people were posting it (which is why it came up again).

So I was asking my mutuals to consider it and yes, as a public post, because maybe someone else would consider it too.

I was not in a place, while nauseous from several posts just showing up on my home TL, to ask people individually, because I only do that when I got the right kind of energy to be civil about it. :P

I mostly agree with your points, I just don't need to hear them when someone just triggered a headache for me. :p

@bright_helpings example of the meme, it's these 9 generated images. And so many people have been posting them.

At least celesteh CWd theirs, so I can link them.

@maloki Hey, could you explain or link me to an example of that? I must be out of the loop...

@maloki I see a content warning that I do not want to uncover, so I guess that'll be a mystery for me. Thanks :D
